    bankers and brokers. When I say they have little or no consideration of the consequences of their actions, I am speaking from my experience with most, but not all, of those in power positions that I have personally met.

    In truth, I believe that if there was a moon or Mars colony they could escape to after pillaging this planet, that is what they would do.

    They simply lack the moral compass that directs so many of our actions. Considerations about systemic waste or inefficiency isn't part of their lexicon. They are the masters of smash and grab, and they know how to get out of potentially sticky situations quickly because they have the funds to buy their way out.

    Attempting to understand them as you might others you meet would be a fallacy. Yes, if you prick them they bleed, but that would be the last time you were permitted anywhere near them.

    The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. ~ John F. Kennedy
